Pre-Configured Audit Profiles

Alloy Discovery provides with three pre-configured profiles, that are generally sufficient for many organizations. You can use them as they are, customize them as needed, or create your own. Pre-configured Audit Profiles work as follows:

  • Full audit Collects full hardware and software inventory. Use this profile if you are not interested in searching computers’ hard drives for individual files.
  • Full audit with file scan Collects full hardware and software inventory and searches for .exe files. Use this profile only when you are interested in those files because audit with this profile may take a significant amount of time to complete.
  • Quick audit without software discovery Quickly collects hardware inventory on audited computers. However, with this profile the audit will not collect it does not collect any information about installed software products.
